11 Words You’ll Only Understand If You’re From West Virginia

If you were born and raised in West Virginia, you are guaranteed to have several words that you use, maybe daily, that only West Virginians understand. These words have been passed down from our mamaws and papaws over the years. They are words that will most likely always be part of our culture. We say them without hesitation and just expect the person we are talking to understand.

These words may sound strange to some, but they are part of our history, culture and traditions.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
